  1. Funny thing, if this festival was coming to California with the same line-up. The Sunday would be the best line-up for me to go to more as a curio for bands like GNR, Deftones, and Lamb of God since the only bands on that day I really like is Alter Bridge and Skillet.
  2. 'Living The Dream' World Tour 2018/2019

    For those wondering where they are going to be in the Chicago area around this time, they will be playing at Lollapalooza. Don't know why in this particular tour, which is all headlining shows indoors, they opt to play a festival (same thing for the Montreal show), but it is what it is https://loudwire.com/lollapalooza-2019-lineup/
  3. Will there ever be another all-time great rock album?

    For me, I think the last great rock album didn't take place in the 90s. Look at Green Day's American Idiot or Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory. Those albums were pretty big in the mainstream for guys in my age bracket growing up. Everyone knows Boulevard of Broken Dreams and everyone knows In the End and despite the perception of those bands in their later days, people just latched on to those albums when it came out. That stated, around 2005 onwards, I don't see any rock band really capturing the youth's attention like those albums did in their time and who knows if it can happen again? I don't see it happening and honestly, that's fine with me. Everyone wants rock to be mainstream again, but that just means it gives promoters a chance to gauge ticket prices at an inflated price than the threshold that I'm willing to pay anyway.
  4. Will there ever be another all-time great rock album?

    I think you forgot about Taylor Swift's 1989. I didn't listen to it in full aside from the hits that you would hear in the backgrounds of malls and stuff, but I did read that that album sold like hotcakes.
  5. Yeah, I say that sorta counts. Slash added some good guitar parts in Halestorm's Here's to Us. As stated before though, people would have liked to see M. Shadows, Corey Taylor, Lzzy Hale, etc. work with Slash's solo band, but then again, with their respective bands are pretty much blowing up, especially when it comes to Active Rock charts, that there's no way you make a band like A7X, Slipknot/Stone Sour, and Halestorm go half-time for a certain period of time like Alter Bridge has been. Those bands are pretty much successful mainstream bands and Alter Bridge is nowhere near that in the states (though their loyal fanbase will still pack around 2,000 people venues in the states based on whatever they put out).
